Congratulations to Paul Weyland Golf student Colby Dean for his fine play at the Whitetail Junior Invitational. Colby shot rounds of 69 and 71 and finished in second place. The Whitetail Invitational is a very competitive tournament and attracts the best junior golfers from across the West. Colby has attributed his fine play to keeping a positive attitude and accepting his bad shots. Colby also recently committed to play for California State University Chico. Congratulations Colby!!!!
Congratulations to Maribel Lopez Porras, long time student from the Leadbetter Golf Academy, for qualifying for LPGA Q School stage III. Going into the final round, Maribel was one shot inside the number needed to qualify for stage III, the final stage of LPGA Q School. She faced the adversity and shot an even par 72 to move on to stage III.
Maribel has not only worked very hard, she has worked smart and practiced properly doing her block practice, random practice, and games. More important, she has great attitude and perspective on golf and life. She understands that it’s about the journey and not the destination.
All the best to Maribel at the final stage of Q school!!
Going into the final round, Madeleine was one shot inside the number needed to qualify for Stage III, the final stage of LPGA Q School. She faced the adversity and shot 1 under par 71 which qualified her for stage 3.
Madeleine’s goal for the week was “acceptance.” She had a great game plan. She planned her shot, executed it, accepted it, and moved on to the next shot. Being able to accept your shots, good and bad, will really help maintain a positive attitude – the most important attribute to playing your best golf. Madeleine is starting to understand that it’s not really about the destination of getting on the LPGA; it’s more about the journey and learning to really enjoy and embrace the journey!!
All the best to Madeleine at the final stage of Q school!!
Below is a link to a great article about how to be the best sports parent you can be. The next time you are taking your kids to participate in a sport just try telling them only one thing that “you love to watch them play” and no matter how they play tell them again on the ride home and watch how happy they are.
